Moleskine Update

I stand by my review of the Moleskine tablet for all the reasons I gave. However, it has been brought to my attention that some people have a slight quibble with them — or I guess it's a pretty big quibble depending on who you talk to.

Anyway, the paper is a bit on the thin side, so if you write with a dark pen, especially one with gel or india ink, it will show through the page pretty badly. I tested this and found it to be true.

I don't have this problem, mainly because I only write on the odd pages. This leaves a blank page for making notes and revisions later, which I often do in pencil. Also, I would prefer to have more pages crammed into a smaller booklet than to have thicker paper. And finally the bleed doesn't really bother me. To each his own.
